THE BRONX - A hip-hop duo is using its own disabilities and experiences to promote anti-violence among the borough's youth.  

Bronx natives Tap Waterz and Rick Fire form the group "4 Wheel City," and they are both confined to wheelchairs as a result of senseless gun violence. 

The two-person team now works with various groups as peer mediators, helping Bronx students solve their problems by talking, rather than resorting to violence.

Tap Waterz said, "Where we come from, people don't talk things out, they shoot it out, they fight it out, and they end up in wheelchairs."
